Far-Left Anarchist to Remain in Custody Until Next Week

From Hamodia, YERUSHALAYIM, Thursday, January 9, 2020

Far-left radical anarchist Yonatan Pollak will remain in custody until next Wednesday – at his own request, Ha’aretz reported Thursday. According to the report, the court had been prepared to release him, but telling the court that he did not recognize the authority of the court to jail him, he requested that he be held indefinitely in custody, as a “political prisoner.” He has also refused to post a NIS 500,000 bond the court set to release him. The court agreed to keep him in jail until next Wednesday, the report said.

Always unrepentant: regarding two recent events

From Act for Freedom!, Italy

While the flames of revolt are exploding over half the world, here hyper-technological authoritarianism seems to be coming up against less and less hostility of populations no longer able to raise their heads and perhaps even unable to recognize their enemies.

Thus, if on the one hand we are finding it hard to discover or rediscover projectualities and practices capable of putting the adversaries in difficulty, then on the other hand, men in uniform and authorities are storming ahead in a repressive toughening that is striking those who, from the streets to the prisons, are refusing to blend in.

From Act for Freedom!

This piece has finally arrived. Juan had mentioned it in his letters. We thought it had been censored. In fact it was confirmed that on 4th October 2019 an investigating judge seized it as he considered it “instigation to commit a crime” or some form of incitement to “anarchist activity” and seized it in order to protect the forces of order.

Public Statement from Fugitive Anarchist Comrade Dimitris Chatzivasileiadis

From Anarchists Worldwide, Greece

PUBLIC STATEMENT

Since Saturday 9th of November, following the police raid at a man’s home, which has been his declared residence for many years, this man and one more, a persecuted fighter and political prisoner in the past, have been incarcerated in the cells of the Greek state, facing heavy charges. The regime’s propaganda media, which take on the job of spreading the scenarios of the repression mechanisms, portray the two arrested as well as myself as members of the armed organization Revolutionary Self Defense, who have been preparing, according to the suspicions of the “counter”-terrorist agency, new attacks. Starting from these arrests and with the added excuse of the search for me, the state has unleashed a mass operation of terrorism against anarchists and the wider social movement. Such efforts, which are pillars of the timeless counter-revolutionary strategy of the rulers, have been dealt with several times by the movement, by its stamina, its broad solidarity and by continuing and intensifying the struggle. Being at the epicenter of this operation I ought to make a public statement about my political stance and the characteristics of the regime’s current aggression that is directed against society and the movement.
